Keratoconus cone variants

This retrospective study examined correlation between three keratoconic parameters to further understand anatomy of keratoconic cones. Kmax and pachymetry of the thinnest point were obtained from the Pentacam scans. Decentration was calculated as distance from the corneal vertex to the...

Comparison of corneal deformation parameters in keratoconic and normal eyes

This study set out to compare biomechanical properties between normal and keratoconic eyes. It was a retrospective study evaluating 89 eyes (47 normal, 42 keratoconic) and a validation arm of 72 eyes (33 normal, 39 keratoconic) using a high speed...

Combined PRK and CXL in keratoconus

This study aimed to investigate the results after photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) followed immediately by standard 30-minute corneal cross-linking (CXL) for keratoconus. This retrospective study included 26 eyes of 16 patients with keratoconus. Uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA), corrected distance visual...

An arm and a leg

“It cost me an arm and a leg.” – Mr B told me. An arm and a leg to be seen by the famous Russian eye surgeon who said that everybody can be spectacle-free. He took Mr B’s money (roughly...

Cost-effectiveness of femtosecond cataract surgery

Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery has become increasingly popular due to the reported benefits of increasing precision and reproducibility of capsulorrhexis, less power and manipulation required during phacoemulsification, better corneal wound architecture, and the ability to place precise arcuate keratotomy incisions...

Cornea, 2-Volume Set: Fundamentals, Diagnosis, Management and Surgery of the Cornea and Conjunctiva (4th Edition)

Originally published in 1997 as a comprehensive set of three volumes on cornea and external eye disease, this two volume edition, published at the end of 2016, offers “a complete multimedia resource, in print, online, eBook and video format”. There...

32nd International Congress of the Hellenic Society of Intraocular Implant and Refractive Surgery (HSIOIRS)

Pioneering ophthalmologist and Medical Director of Centre For Sight Mr Sheraz Daya was awarded the Fyodorov Medal at the 32nd International Congress of the Hellenic Society of Intraocular Implant and Refractive Surgery (HSIOIRS) in Athens, Greece. President Elect of HSIOIRS...

Stromal cell alignment in damaged cornea

Stromal keratocytes are responsible for wound healing in the cornea following damage. Keratocytes at the site of injury become activated and differentiate to myofibroblasts which secrete extracellular matrix (ECM) to close the wound, a response mediated by transforming growth factor...

Dry eyes after photorefractive keratoplasty

This study examined changes in tear break up time (TBUT), Schirmer test, tear osmolarity and dry eye questionnaire (OSDI) score from prior to photorefractive keratoplasty (PRK), to two months and four months postoperatively. Fifty eyes of 25 patients were examined....

Is laser refractive surgery safe for patients taking isotretinoin?

This multicentre, retrospective, interventional case series assesses the outcomes of laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) in 113 patients taking isotretinoin between January 2003 and September 2017. Isotretinoin is contraindicated for LASIK and PRK and patients are...

Principles of contact lens fitting in keratoconus

Keratoconus is an ectatic condition of the cornea characterised by progressive conical distortion with irregular astigmatism, myopia and apical protrusion. Most cases progress slowly resulting in varying degrees of myopic astigmatism. Management of keratoconus includes spectacles, soft contact lenses, a...

Familial Mediterranean Fever and keratoconus

This retrospective case control study was conducted in the Genetic Diagnostic Centre in Turkey. It examined the prevalence of keratoconus in two groups; patients with Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF) and age matched controls free of FMF, who were tested for...
